Kane supported by Moura and Lamela against Villa

Harry Kane (£11.0m) will be supported by Lucas Moura (£7.5m) and Erik Lamela (£6.0m) for Spurs’ Gameweek 1 clash with Aston Villa.

With Son Heung-min (£9.5m) suspended and Dele Alli (£8.5m) ruled out with a hamstring injury, there was an opportunity for cheaper midfield players to come in for Spurs.

Moura and Lamela have taken those opportunities and those who included them in their first squad of the season will be delighted.

Moura is currently in 11.2% of squads as the Brazilian was considered the most popular cheaper alternative to the expensive Kane.

Lamela is the real differential, snapped up by Scout legend Mark Sutherns for Gameweek 1, and owned by just 0.7% of Fantasy managers.

Christian Eriksen (£9.0m) is among the substitutes and it will be interesting to see which of the attacking players he replaces if he does come on.

Kyle Walker-Peters (£5.0m) gets a start at right-back with Juan Foyth (£5.0m) suspended, although Serge Aurier (£5.0m) has recovered from his knock to feature on the bench.

Meanwhile, Dean Smith surprised Fantasy managers with some elements of his team selection.

Despite Matt Targett (£4.5m) and Frederic Guilbert (£4.5m) playing extensively at left and right full-back respectively in pre-season, neither were in the starting line-up.

The former was named on the bench while Guilbert was not in the matchday squad at all.

Furthermore, Jota (£6.0m) also impressed during the summer but is named among the substitutes while Anwar El Ghazi (£5.5m) and Trezeguet (£5.5m) start either side of Wesley (£6.0m)

Spurs XI: Lloris; Rose, Sánchez, Alderweireld, Walker-Peters; Ndombele, Sissoko, Winks; Lamela, Lucas; Kane.

Aston Villa XI: Heaton; N Taylor, Mings, Engels, El Mohamady; Grealish, McGinn, Hourihane; El Ghazi, Wesley, Trezeguet.

    Kane with 8 shots this game? Was he really looking great or just lucky towards the end?

    1. KGFC
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      1st one def lucky, 2nd he took it well

    2. SirStevieG
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Jammy luck.

    3. thepeen555
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      The other chances were not proper chances apart from a header that I remember

    4. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Upto 70 min, no one would guess he will score 1, let alone 2 goals. But Eriksen changed the game when he came on. Spurs players all of a sudden came to life. Goes to show one quality addition can make a big difference in other players confidence.

      1. Podge
        • 9 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Exactly

    5. puhd
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      its Kane. He scores.

    6. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Oh man some people are so bitter. Mark of a great striker that he's not in the game but scores 2 goals.

      Sure Eriksen changed the game but Kane still had to be in the right place at the right time. If it's Salah or Aguero or Auba everyone would be saying omg they're great didn't do much but scored goals. Put some respect on Harry Kanes name

  3. NeverLucky

    Anyone with Kane going to switch to Auber for next GW?

    1. pablo discobar
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 10 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Considering it for captain, but sterling could damage spurs

      1. NeverLucky
        • 1 Year
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Same issue for me too. Burnley were also pretty solid defensively...

  4. Niho992

    Grealish is one league side player

    1. Licky

      Yeah, I wasn't impressed.

    2. puhd

      i expected a lot more from the lad. Have him in my team :/

    3. thepeen555

      Will have to see but didn’t do anything tonight

  5. Mumble Pie

    Anyone else got their Baps added yet ? Mine not showing on FPL ??

    1. badgerboy
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      They won't get added for a while.

    2. Pad Randa

      For which matches?

    3. Throwback
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member

      No baps included for today’s match’s showing on mine

  6. sully29

    • 5 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    So the three big guns all deliver.

    Good news if you have all three, depending on the cost to the rest of your team. If you have two of them then all is well and the competition rolls on another week. If you only have one then you were always on to a loser so... *shrugs*

  7. Zico Senna
    • 8 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Still not tempted by Kane, doesn’t inspire confidence

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Not against City. Will contemplate to bring in Son for gw3 though.

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Yeah i feel Son is where it’s at when he returns

        1. ZeBestee
          • 5 Years
          8 months, 3 days ago

          Kane will be difficult to ignore though when other Spurs players are back.

    2. NeverLucky
      • 1 Year
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Overall I feel same, I have him, but really is not good for my heart....

      Problem is only other premium is Auber. In long run I think Kane is still better choice than the tier 2 strikers like Jimenez, Wilson et.al..

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        That’s exactly it, not good for the heart haha!
        I’d prefer Auba if he lights it up

    3. Squeaky Bum Time
      • 6 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Banged in 2 goals after having a poor game in August.
      I'll be keeping him thanks.

      1. Zico Senna
        • 8 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        You do that 🙂

  8. Hairy Potter
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Hmm, was planning on shifting Wilson and Moura after GW2 to get Kane. Now worried I won't have enough cash if Kane rises.

    1. thepeen555
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Just wait. He won’t rise for a while imo

    2. Magic Zico

  10. DaniCT

    8 months, 3 days ago

    That moment when a goal and an assist isn't enough form your captain to have a decent gw

  11. puhd
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Kelly or Rico as Gilbert replacement?

    1. ZeBestee
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Rico.

    2. KGFC
      • 3 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      What happened to Guilbert? Injured or suddenly no more in plans?

      1. puhd
        • Fantasy Football Scout Member
        • 5 Years

        wasn't in the squad. don't know why, but I am selling.

    Villa parked the bus too early

  14. The Big Fella
    • 3 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    I don't remember a first gameweek with such a high average score for the top 10k. Is it because the game is covered more on Twitter, on here and other sites, television etc?

    1. The Mastermind
      • 2 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Nah, just premium players performing.

    2. Ha.
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Salah, Sterling and Kane won’t be able to average a brave each gameweek.

      1. Ha.

    4. tricpic

      Just because the obvious three premium players all scored big

    6. AndyCook

      No such thing as top 10k at this stage..

  15. Sun Jihai

    Average score around 70?

    1. Big Troy Deeney

      44

    2. Podge

      On here but that’s not the real average

  16. The Mastermind
    • 2 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Any risk of Moura dropping before GW2?

    1. RAFA THE GAFFA
      • 4 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Getting dropped or dropping in price? Why to either? Can’t see either!

    2. Magic Zico
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 1 Year

      No way his price drops this soon

    Anyone watched the game, how did KWP play? Worth keeping? He was my one punt - should have gone with Walker.

    2. ADucksBehind

    3. Van der Faart

    Kane was in my team until Thursday. After watching tonight I’m not unhappy he didn’t make the cut. Not impressed with Spurs and Kane, got lucky tonight.

    1. Licky
      • Fantasy Football Scout Member
      • 7 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      I think they'll be better with Son back, and maybe Lo Celso in the side. I'm probably gonna wait and see.

    2. Rains of Castamere
      • 5 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      But it's not about admiring his performance. It's knowing that he just gets goals.

    3. Kobayashy
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Lucky or unlucky, doesn't make a difference. He's in the right place at the right time so as long as those points keep rolling in.

    4. Van der Faart
      • 8 Years
      8 months, 3 days ago

      Inject your bitterness into my veins

      1. yer old da
        • 10 Years
        8 months, 3 days ago

        Not at all. I’m on 75 with Jota and Perez to come so doing fine, and I think the balance is better without him. Can’t argue with the comments that he just scores goals, difficult to argue with that.

  22. Ógie
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 7 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Some epic scores out there.

    Lots of the big hitters living up to their price tags.

  23. Hairy Potter
    • 4 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    I can't remember the last time I watched Kane and thought he'd had a good game, but he's just a machine at scoring goals and you can't knock that.

    1. yer old da
      • 10 Years

      This is true tbf

  24. Brosstan
    • Fantasy Football Scout Member
    • 5 Years
    8 months, 3 days ago

    Kane asked in post match interview about Eriksen sounded like hes leaving tbh. Didnt answer when asked if he would like him to stay but instead said "we know when he's asked to put on the shirt he'll give 110% and thats all we can ask for at any point".

      VVD and which other defenders that scored? I hope Perez scores for you too mate 😉

      Decent enough. Still don’t trust he’ll start next game though.
